SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2010 / — Promising to be an impressive evening of urban style and chic fashions, The Art Institute of California – San Francisco presents its 2010 Student Fashion Show and Competition

Named “United Streets of Fashion”, the show will be held on Saturday, June 19th at 7pm at the San Francisco Design Center (101 Henry Adams Street).

United Streets of Fashion offers Art Institute students the chance to showcase their collections on the runway to an audience of 1,500 guests including industry professionals, Bay Area designers, fellow students, family and friends.

San Francisco is a city comprised of many diverse neighborhoods, all of which offer their own unique sensibility and approach to style. United Streets of Fashion, the annual fashion show from the students at The Art Institute of California – San Francisco, has taken these unique fashion districts and transported them from the sidewalk to the catwalk.

Beneath the bright lights and beat thumping soundtrack, models will strut student designs down the runway which epitomize each neighborhood: slouchy knitwear emblematic of the Castro; chic bohemian styles straight from the Haight; high fashion from the Hayes Valley set; sexy, sleek business attire made for the FiDi professional; and gritty urban styles from the streets of the Mission.

Just over 100 designs from 26 designers will be featured on the runway, narrowed down from over 180 submissions. The designers were chosen for their innovative approach and their ability to embody each district within San Francisco through their own unique point of view.

A panel of industry professionals and top designers will judge the fashions as they saunter down the runway, including Amy Sarabi from Project Runway Season 7 and Nathalie Doucet, President of Arts of Fashion Foundation.

The show will be hosted by Elisabeth Laurence, creator, host, and co-executive producer of the broadcast TV show Lives of Style™©2010, which highlights the “Best-of-the-Best” in the world—in fashion, style, beauty and lifestyle. Lives of Style airs in San Francisco, with launches in LA, NY, Miami and nationwide forthcoming.
